Athena the Barn Oswl #2 IMG_0657
Athena, the Barn Owl #2. 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas. $695

This barn owl (named by the Audubon Society Eyes in the Sky project) is housed in their facility at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and comes out in public every afternoon. I painted her with an eponymous barn and an imaginary friend using primarily transparent acrylics, finishing the painting with several coats of matte acrylic varnish, which give the it an ethereal quality.

3 Long-Billed Curlews
3 Long-Billed Curlews. 26″ x 36″ acrylic on panel. $1,100

These three curlews were striding together along Hendry’s Beach in Santa Barbara when I photographed them in this great pose. I painted them with a white background with just a hint of reflection to emphasize the birds themselves.

Vandenberg Falcons 24″x30 acrylic on canvas, $950. When I painted this Peregrine falcon I hadn’t quite realized how intimidated he looked, so I thought it might be good to have something in the picture to intimidate him. What better than the SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy I had just watched launched from Vandenberg AFB?
